Military engineering needs much study to be practiced well.
The school teaches all the specialised skills that an officer of engineers will require,
such as surveying, the use of explosives, military architecture, construction, the arts of
siege warfare, military illustration to create maps, and much else besides. Some tactical
skills are taught as well, but engineers are not usually expected to command armies and
issue orders to gentlemen of quality. However, this hard-won knowledge helps create
better officers and improves the recruitment of military units.
Sappers and miners, like artillery experts, had a long history of being permanent
retainers in royal armies of the medieval and Renaissance periods. Thanks to the likes
of the French Marshal Vauban (1633-1707) and his magnificent fortifications, the need
for military engineers to create, or break into, defences grew, not lessened, during the
18th Century. The elaborate and layered defences that he and his successors developed
required skilled architects and builders. Engineer officers became a corps of highly
educated experts, while leaving the hard, mucky work of digging to the rank-and-file
sappers and common pioneers!
